Focus tops Corolla as world's best-selling car
Text of the article from The Detroit News:
Buoyed by the Chinese market, Ford Motor Co.'s Focus compact car outsold all other vehicles in 2012 by a wide margin, according to data released today by market researcher R.L. Polk & Co.
The Dearborn automaker sold more than 1 million Focus cars worldwide last year, topping the No. 2 best-seller and perennial sales champion, Toyota Motor Corp.'s Corolla compact car, by more than 147,000 cars.
Ford sells the Focus in more than 100 countries and the car has become a huge success in China. The automaker sold nearly 300,000 Focus cars in China last year, after an all-new Focus made its debut in March. Ford sells two Focus cars in that market — an older-generation, or "Classic" Focus, and the current generation that is sold around the globe.
Ford's F-Series trucks finished third on the 2012 list with 785,630 vehicles sold.
Other vehicles from domestic automakers in the top 10 include Ford's Fiesta subcompact, the sixth-best seller with 723,130 sales, and General Motors Co.'s Chevrolet Cruze compact car, at No. 8 with 661,325 sold.
